Advent and Christmas Schedule

Events During Advent

Advent Retreat

Preparing Our Hearts with Mary
Sat, December 3, 9:00-12:00 in the Church

Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of Christ into our hearts, our families and our homes. You are invited to set aside a morning, as we begin our journey to Christmas, to join us for our Advent Morning Retreat, asking Mary to help us prepare for the joyous gift of her Son.  Points of meditation will be given and there will be time for silent prayer.  Fr. O’Connor will be available for Confession.

Saturday Adoration

Sat, During Advent

Every Saturday during Advent in this year focused on the Eucharist we will have a full hour of adoration following the 8:15 am Mass (9-10 am) every 1st Saturday.

“Our communal worship at Mass must go together with our personal worship of Jesus in Eucharistic adoration in order that our love may be complete”  

(St. Pope John Paul II, Redemptor Hominis)
